Carolyn-Herfurth-headshotBusiness is a blast when you get it right. When you know the keys to what works for you. Rather than squeezing into something that isn’t a fit.

Business as usual is when you follow the advice of people who discovered something that worked for them and you try to apply it to your business… but it’s not the right fit for you.
